The January 2021 Regents Examinations have been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, according to Interim State Education Commissioner Betty A. Rosa. No decision has been made regarding the June and August 2021 Regents Exams.

“Throughout the pandemic our priority has been the health and wellbeing of our students and educators,” said Interim Commissioner Rosa. “We determined the January Regents Exams could not be safely, equitably and fairly administered across the State given where the pandemic currently stands. We will continue to monitor applicable data and make a decision on other State assessment programs as the school year progresses, being mindful of the evolving situation.”

The January Regents Exams, which had been scheduled for January 26-January 29, will now be school days at Columbia High School. The schedule for that week is listed below:
 

  • Monday, January 25 – A Day
  • Tuesday, January 26 – B Day
  • Wednesday, January 27 – Live Virtual Instruction
  • Thursday, January 28 – A Day
  • Friday, January 29 – B Day
